I want to be Brock.

How do you pay someone like him that much!?

Free agency rarely leads to success it seems, but I love watching teams like Jacksonville, Oakland and Cleveland overpay for players in March every year. There aren't any new-team contracts I've seen today that look like decent value.

Denver way overpaid for a slightly above average LT whose nickname is "glass". He has only played one 16 game season, and that was his rookie year. Have fun with that. :lol:

The U.S. Court of Appeals handed down a decision on Monday morning that will reinstate the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his connection to deflated footballs used in the AFC Championship Game back in Jan. 2015.

Brady's suspension was nullified by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman back in September, just a week before the Patriots' first game of the 2015 regular season.

In a 33-page decision, the second circuit court's decision can be boiled down to the following statement:

"We hold that the commissioner properly exercised his broad discretion under the collective bargaining agreement and that his procedural rulings were properly grounded in that agreement and did not deprive Brady of fundamental fairness. Accordingly, we reverse the judgement of the district court and remand with instructions to confirm the award."
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

This issue is so stupid. Just let it die.

Brady cheated. He should just accept his suspension and move on with it. The fact that it is being tied up in court is ridiculous. You can't agree to the CBA and then sue when you don't like the process you agreed to.

The Steelers have a WR suspended for the entire year because he's a drug addict. I find that penalty much more egregious than a 4-game suspension for a guy that was party to blatant cheating.

I am mad that Arizona likely gets a win because they will get to play a Bradyless Pats team. :evil:
The stupid Cards and their red-faced coach are so lucky. But still, Carson will never get them a ring. He's no Warner and never will be.
